Painting of Quinces

A group of quinces on the edge of a table, their golden Autumn colour picked out by the morning light set me off here. An exercise in color and paint, freely executed with comparitively large brushes and completed over a single session, this small painting is an example of an occasional change of style I find it useful to adopt, in order to prevent myself becoming overly concerned with detail, and to maintain a fresh approach, the paint is thickly textured with dragged and stretched brushmarks criss-crossing the canvas.
